If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped
it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque
converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it
is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car,
which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call
around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is
familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be
honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with
the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed
there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740
(depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show
that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be
with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the
transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the
transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other
causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to
talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible
reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.

Just fixed this just the other day for a customer. Disconnect the battery first only after you've wormed up the engine just some, You'll have to hold the gas pedal. now with it off and the battrry unhooked remove the large air hose in the middlle of the front of the motor. There's a cover on the top of the moter held on with a few 10 MM headed nuts and set this cover aside. unscrew the rubber hose and work it off the throttle body. Position the hose out of the way and now you can see the throllte blade. You can pust it open with your finger. You'll notice that it's very dirty. This dirt can be removed with carb clearer or throttle body cleaner, Holding it open not only clean the blade also clean the hole that it closes in, Wipe good with a rag and try not to get too much down in the engine. once wiped up an dclean put the hose back on and tightem it and put the cover back on and then connect the battery and start it. You may have to hold a fast idel till the engine burns off the cleaner and then let off slowly and it'll idel if nothing else is wrong. Soon as you can try to use up and change to freash gas.
